Hi all, just got my NEc 1300A today, and updated to the 1.07 firmware (non-hacked). I am having the following trouble during my backup of my gigs of mp3s.
I have some Maxell DVD-R 2x media, and I chose DVD from the nero menu, and long filenames, etc. I added all of the mp3's (I was making a data disc, not audio), and it burned. It did a verify as well, and all was good according to that. However, after reading the disc later, I found out that the latter half of the MP3's wouldn't play at all. the file size was in tact, but the mp3 wouldn't play. I put it into my Pioneer 106 DVD drive, and the same problem persisted.
I decided to make an ISO and then burn it that way, so I made an ISO of the directory with EZCD 6, since I couldn't figure out how to do it with Nero.
After I made the ISO, I burned it with Alcohol 120%, and everything went fine. When I checked the disc however, I had the same problem, plus additional problems. Some of the files were truncated, and in addition, some were 0 bytes now (the latter part of the files, meaning that say I had a directory from A-Z, and for example, N-Z files didnt work). I mounted the ISO into a virtual drive with Alcohol 120%, and the problem matched the DVD.
Ok, now help me please.. these discs are getting expensive.
I also am trying DVD UDF/ISO and DVD UDF in nero 6. The file truncating is gone, and so are the 0byte files, but the files just wont open. A box opens up and says these dvd files are corrupt on the ones I can't access.
Does anyone have any ideas, besides getting some +RW to experiment with
